retail news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports this morning that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to this point has no idea how E. coli, a bacteria sometimes found in raw hamburger, made its way into Nestlé Toll House refrigerated cookie dough.

But the FDA plans to remain in the Virginia plant that manufactured the dough until it figures it out.

The product has been pulled from US store shelves and the plant has been shut down. Seventy people reportedly have been sickened by the dough, but nobody has died.
